Our Generation’s Wrinkle
The Telegraph wrote an article about the ‘Tech Neck’. What is a Tech Neck?
Found mostly in people aged 18 to 40 who have on average three digital devices, such as tablet, ipad and smartphone, the ‘tech neck’.
Constantly bending the neck to read text messages or use apps is said to be causing sagging skin, dropping jowls and a distinct crease in our neck. Digital devices have been blamed for many things, lack of sleep, bad posture and now premature aging. A constant downward stare at your device contributes to further lines and creases around the chin and neck area.
It’s mainly become a problem for a generation of younger women we have noticed. Where previous generations have worried about their ‘T-zone’ now think about their ‘Y-zone’ which makes up the lower face, throat and upper chest.
What can help?
The Perfect Peel

INTRAcel is a revolutionary treatment using radio frequency and tiny insulated micro-needles which, unlike laser procedures, protects the surface of the skin from damage. INTRAcel improves the texture of your skin. It will minimize signs of ageing including sagging, fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Nu-derm Skincare System
NuDerm is the signature Obagi range, designed to treat signs of ageing – hyperpigmentation (including dark age spots), fine lines and wrinkles. Tretinoin is a prescription ingredient included in the system to increase the rate of turnover of your skin cells and target skin health from within the cell. This is available in varying concentrations and the appropriate one will be selected for you during a consultation.
Microneedling involves causing tiny injuries to the dermis of the skin using very small needles, either as a roller or as a small stamp like device. These ‘microtraumas’ stimulate a healing response in the skin, prompting new collagen formation and a smoother younger-looking skin.
Genuine DermarollerTM is the gold standard medical grade microneedling device. Compared with other brands the needles are designed to penetrate to the ideal distance and with the needles optimally separated. This minimises the risk of tearing the skin. The depth of penetration with medical microneedling is greater than can be achieved with home-use devices or those used by beauty therapists, maximising results.
